Our Certified Infant Sleep Educator, Kim Hawley, approaches sleep from a developmental, biological, and evolutionary perspective. She helps parents understand that responsive parenting, even at night, is the foundation for strong attachment and optimal brain development. Her work with families approaches sleep from three angles: education on normal infant/toddler sleep and development; information on optimal sleep conditions including environment and daily patterns; and strategies for optimizing parents’ rest and wellbeing regardless of baby’s sleep. While these consults cannot promise you a full night of unbroken sleep, we can promise that you will understand your baby’s nighttime needs and have the tools to cope with nighttime parenting without sacrificing your own needs.
We offer 2 types of sleep education/support:
Comprehensive Sleep Support
A sleep consultation package that includes an extensive client history form, 3 hours of support spread between 3-4 virtual sessions (in person by request), a sleep reference guide, and one month email support.
A stand-alone sleep consultation that consists of a brief email exchange for context of the challenges and a 45 minute phone call. This option is best suited to families who just have a few questions about what’s normal or how to approach a new sleep situation.
